When using chrome as my browser I want ktorrent used for opening magnet links. Originally
transmission was being used and the following was the case....
[egreshko@meimei ~]$ xdg-settings get default-url-scheme-handler magnet
So, I did....
xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler magnet ktorrent.desktop
No matter how many times I executed that command the "get" still returned
Finally I erased transmission-gtk and transmission-common.
When I first executed the "get" it still returned transmission-gtk.desktop. I
then did the "set" again, and finally ktorrent.desktop was returned and chrome
used ktorrent as requested.
So, can anyone give a suggestion as to why the "sets" failed to change the
settings until transmission was removed from the system?
